SUP Surfing Retreats

 The amount of fun you have on your SUP adventure depends on a few things….

Here’s what’s important:

The Guides

We are Portuguese SUP-Surfers… And we are locals!

We know HOW, WHEN and WHERE!!

Sit back, relax and focus on your SUP Surfing, we’ll get you there!  All the beach transfers are included in your retreat package.

Our SUP-faris run 6 days a week from 7am to 5pm.

We’re not your typical SUP School that sticks to just one area.

Every effort possible is made to find the best conditions for every day you are SUP Surfing.

The Mauka Lodge SUP-Van is ready to travel up to 40 km North or South of our location to find great waves. (if needed to travel more to find better suitable conditions, an additional 10€ round trip per person will be charged)

This covers a huge number of well known spots, as well as a few secret ones!  😉

The Gear

Having high quality equipment has a HUGE impact on your learning process and overall experience!

At Mauka Lodge we provide high performance SUPs and longboards from Sunova. We believe these boards have the best quality, surf-ability and lightest construction on the market today.

We also know the paddle you use is as important as the board you ride. That’s why at our Lodge you’ll only find Full Carbon Paddles from QuickBlade. We have blade sizes from 81 to 90 square inches.

Dry Paddling & SUP Drills

Yes, the video is 6 seconds long… Yes, you’re going to need a bit longer than that!

During your stay we run different SUP Surfing Paddle Clinics focused on the individual analysis of your paddling stroke and theory behind it.

Learning how to improve your stroke efficiency – using less effort with proper posture – to catch more waves and avoid injuries.

Knowing how to use your paddle to make stronger bottom turns and tighter cut-backs is crucial.

A good cutback is simple when you have proper technique and body alignment. We teach it to you out of the water, and then we practice together in the water!

Video Analysis

We know how important it is to have feedback on your SUP Surfing!

There’s no better way than seeing yourself and having an expert coach analyse you.

When your SUP Guide is not on the water SUP Surfing with you and giving you tips, he will be out of the water taking videos of your performance to analyse later in the day.

We have been doing this for a long time, and our clients often tell us our how our expertise and advice are a major factor in improving their skill level.

At the end of your stay, we’ll give you a copy of all your video footage to take home with you. FREE!
